Outreach

Our outreach ministries involve parishioners in a number of ways through organized events.  Additionally, St. Mark’s meets various needs as crises arise, such as hurricanes, wild fires, etc., both in terms of donations & rebuilding projects.  Some of the events St. Mark’s community assists with each year are below.
